M/S Merak Sailboat Description:

The M/S Merak is a budget cruise Galapagos and was recently overhauled! This attractive motor sail–boat accomodates 8-travelers. It is the only available budget Galapagos yacht that can genuinely operate with sails (although it does not necessarily always do so). It is smaller than any other yacht in Galapagos, ideal for couples or small groups. Spite its size, it is actually quite popular among past travelers due to service and intimate atmosphere
